I am tall.
My name is Mark.
I make music.
2017 is my first FAWM! I keep reading that we're not supposed to let production values get in the way, but I want to get better at mixing and I've never recorded music for online consumption.
Here's my plan: day 1, write; day 2, record & mix. The day 2s are taking a bit longer than I expected, but I hope to catch up by the end of the month.
If you are also documenting your FAWM experience on social media (tw/fb/ig), hit me up so we can journey together!
I'm definitely interested in collaboration as the month progresses, once I have settled into my creative workflow. Shoot me a message if you have an idea/need!
Demos and WIPs on SoundCloud. Finished mixed songs on Bandcamp for free+.
I appreciate feedback of all kinds, including lyrical, musical, and production/mixing-related.
10/14 songs completed (avg. 3m02s)
4 use piano
2 use guitar
2 use ukulele
3 use bass
Okay, I think they're fun. ¯|_(ツ)_/¯

Also, I meant to say before, I dig your tallmark logo; it's clever.
If deep voiced ooh's and ahh's are ever in the cards for me, you can bet I will hit you up! Thank you for your comment on "My Stache" 😀
You are very welcome, thank you for clarifying.
Thanks for listening to The River. I'll definitely give more love to the guitar harmonics on future songs!
I was worried the wah would wind up weird, but whatever, it worked 😁 I appreciate your weview!
Thank you much for your encouragement.
Try as I may, I cannot find where I commented on your song, but this is obviously my error, for your song Greetings is fantastic! Great job on it. My house is a musical theater household so I really appreciate your talent. Nice to meet you.
Thanks so much for your praise of my song, Mark! Very much appreciated. We're thrilled to have you here! I get the whole worried-about-production-level thing...I've never been thrilled with my skills in that area. BUT, your first song sounded fantastic to me, so I really don't think you need to fret about it. Write, post, pander to us, please!
Two completely non-related asides:
I am married to a shorter Mark, and I thought about starting to call him Short Mark, but he will be happy to know I will not be doing that, since he's actually marginally taller than me and it would seem unfair.
And, I lived in Vancouver for a little while in '99. I miss that place! Wanted to stay at the end of my visa, but sadly was told to please go home. Alas.
Hey Mark, I'm from the west coast too. Have a great FAWM! 😁
Nice logo, welcome aaaaaaaaaaaand, start writing.
I too am relatively tall...(compared to shorter folks)
I attempt to make music
I'm Igg in Victoria
Welcome to the Madhouse......
